here, new jersey can speak for the region and there's no need for you to come to new york city. what do you think that's about? >> well, i think that's about recovering from the storm. it is real difficult for any white house -- or any city that's been hit boy a storm to deal with a motorcade and a presidential -- a bunch of secret service vans all over the place. that gets in the way of recovery efforts. if there's a place he can go in new jersey to see the damage without getting in the way of the recovery, that's where president obama needs to go right now. it reminds me of the stated reason that george w. bush didn't land in new orleans right after hurricane katrina. he didn't want to get in the way of some of the cleanup. of course that disaster response didn't go as well as it looks like president obama is handling the response happening this time. but there is the danger dealing with secret service logistics at a time when regular logistics, just living every day life, becomes incredibly hard. >> i think it's worth pointing out certainly the obama campaign probably didn't imagine

's mayor for revitalizing a nation of one of the great cities, outstanding leadership during the 9/11 tragedy. during his tenure, he reduced the crime right in new york by more than half, and he cleaned up the streets. i keep adding that on my own deal. he decreased the welfare roles by 60%. by decreasing welfare? no, by increasing work. during the nation's most trying time, he stood up as a man of great character and strength. president reagan named him associate attorney general at the age of 36, just a few years ago, and that was the third most powerful position in the justice department, spent six years as a u.s. attorney in the southern district. his prosecution rate was 99%. we don't want to get on the other side of him. throughout his public career, he was recognized -- he has recognized the spurnes of the legal system and the fact we're protected. i told you he's a man of great character, and he's a character. rudy guiliani, you see what you get, and when he tells you something, he believes it, and he's a man of his word, his absolutely good, but he's also a character. you

. >> good morning. it is monday, october 29th. that's ocean city, maryland, you're looking at right now. with us on set, msnbc contributor mike barnicle and msnbc and "time" senior political analyst, mark halperin. we'll get right to the latest on hurricane sandy. flights are canceled. subways are shut down and millions of people are bracing for an historic storm up and down the eastern seaboard. high winds and rains are beginning to hit places like ocean city, maryland. hurricane sandy will drench areas from north carolina to new england and behind the initial impact, what could be a devastating storm surge. let's go straight to meteorologist bill karins with the very latest on where the hurricane's at. bill. >> good morning to you, mika. and this storm is on schedule, nothing has changed. if anything, it's a little stronger than what we thought it would be at this point. and it's going to be moving on shore within the next 12 to 18 hours. this will be a 24-hour period for areas from the northern mid-atlantic, washington, d.c., all the way through boston that a lot of us will never for
in towards new york city, and that's why we now have significant flooding. i believe we have live pictures or pictures out of new york right now into lower manhattan, and water is going into the battery tunnel right now that connects lower manhattan into brooklyn, and it has now been inundated with water. getting all kinds of reports of water in the east village, in the west village, and it's slowly moving up further in towards the area. i want to show you this wind picture because we're about to see the worst of our situation. right now we have high tide, right there is the battery. that's the very lower end tip of manhattan right there. the winds now have switched to the southeast. that means we'll see the worst of the storm surge pushing in here right at high tide. we've already got water levels two feet higher than we've ever seen. that goes back to a hurricane that was back in 1822 or 1821, so almost 200 years, that kind of a storm. it's not just right here. this is the immediate impact to the area that's under dire stress right now, all kinds of reports of major damage. the city of h
and cities in the region. at this stage everyone is confident that the staging process, the positioning of resources, commodities, and equipment that will be needed to respond to the storm are in place. as craig has emphasized, this has not made landfall yet. we do not yet know where it will hit, where we're going to see the biggest impacts. that is exactly why it is so important for us to respond big and fast as local information starts coming in. i want to thank all of the members of the team for the outstanding work they're doing, but the other thing that makes this storm unique is that we anticipate it will be slow moving. meaning it may take a long time not only to clear, but to get, for example, power companies back in to clear out the trees and put things back in place so that folks can start moving back home. my main message to everyone involved is that we have to take this seriously. the federal government is working effectively with state and local governments. it will be very important that populations in the impacted states take this seriously, listen to your state and local
